Another Stupid Survey

So Gallup reports that the 56 percent majority of Americans think it is not the responsibility of the federal government to ensure that all Americans have health care coverage. What a meaningless number. To understand attitudes toward health insurance, responses must be broken down by age because age—in particular the age of 65—separates the haves from the have-nots.

It's a good bet that most Americans under age 65 think the federal government should ensure health care coverage for all Americans. And it's a good bet that Americans aged 65 or older, comfortably covered by the federal government's Medicare program, are the ones so dead set against it. Let's see the numbers.
